Nice tight cropping - gives good drammatic effect. I would have preferred a deeper DOF so that the beak, surrounding feathers and the left side of the face are all in focus. Have OOF parts are ok usually but not when the crop is so tight - the dramtic effect is lost in my humble opnion.
Good DOF, hue+sat, focus on eyes.
TFS!

Lovely subject! Seems like the picture is slightly oversaturated ... the BG seems too green and the bird too brown.. and a yellowish hue on the tree stump.
However, night tight focus on the eyes, nice off centre positioning, and sufficient space on the left.
TFS!

Love the subject. BG good, but noisy which should be removed. the yellow colour sets him off well.
TFS!!

Nice OOF BG, focus is a little soft on head and body, blur on wings good. Wish there was a little more space to the right as the bird seems to be in the centre of the image or very close to it.
I am amazed at your results at shtter speed of 1250. I have shots of birds in motion as well and do not get good results at any speed under 3250 .. guess cameras,lenses, ISO levels are different.
Have you tried getting them in direct sunlight at speeds of 3200 or more?
TFS!!

I like the composition of this shot! The focussing is off a little bit, which is unfortunate. However, it is an interesting shot.

TFS!

DOf too shallow and the wires (?) in the Bg are distracting. I like the choice of the subject though .. interesting butterfly and the colours of the butterfly and flower make for a good contrast!

TFS!!

Warm welcome to TN Peter!!

I like your first post. Interesting to see the butterflies puddling. I would have cropped differently as the gravel in the front, the wing on the bottom left dont really add to the image.

I like the DOF - well selected, like the focal point of the image, though the cropping takes away from the focus. I also like the blurring of the wings of the yellow swallowtails.

TFS!!
